Picture story of the sunspot #1302 would not have been completed without a picture of the sunspot mirage. Tonight's weather warm and calm was just right to hunt for such mirage. At first the sun was almost round, but then mock mirage began. In a few more moments the sun reached the duct, and I observed a superior mirage of the sunspot (the first frame in the second row).Although the weather was hazy,the green flash overcame the haze. Canon XTI, 300mm Canon lens, ISO 100
